by Yuchuan Wang
JD Logistics will recruit 15,000 logistics employees including couriers, warehouse managers, sorters and drivers to guarantee fast fulfillment when its business is growing rapidly. The announcement was made ahead of the annual peak sales season Singles Day.
The company is now operating more than 750 warehouses nationwide and can deliver parcels same- or next-day in more than 200 cities.
JD also expects the addition of logistics employees can guarantee the fast delivery during the upcoming peak sales season including 11.11 (Singles Day) and 12.12 promotions. During this year’s Singles Day promotion, JD will sell over 200 million products with 50% discounts and more than 300 million new items will be launched through JD’s platform.
JD is one of the few companies that pays the full social insurance and housing fund benefits to frontline logistics employees. The company’s “housing plan” fund has enabled over 800 couriers buy properties.
